Nakia Henderson

Nakia Henderson’s professional experience varies across all life spans. Advocacy has always been number one on her agenda regardless of the person being served. Mrs. Henderson enforced adherence to resident’s rights laws for senior residents in long-term care facilities; as well as encouraged implementation of federal performance standards for head start programs in health and nutrition. She served as a member of the St. Christopher's Hospital, Dental Advisory Committee providing practical and sound advice to approaches on compliancy for children’s oral health treatment plans. She was instrumental in the planning and organizing of Thomas Jefferson Department of Family and Community Medicine Comprehensive Training Grant for all educational levels including medical students, residents, fellows, and faculty.

Currently she provides administrative oversight to the graduate programs and academic advising to students in Health Administration and Health Education. She believes in meeting each person or project exactly where it is and transforming from the “inside-out,” which resembles the Jesuit educational vision of "concern for the individual student" (cura personalis). She works every day to see that each student reaches his or her fullest potential and continues to work to improve health policy and public health issues facing all Americans.

Nakia is an active community advocate through several community and civic organizations. She maintains an optimistic view of human nature and of its possibilities.
